We were finishing our weeks cottage holiday in fantastic Bainbridge,it's a shame our last memory of the week was staying local for a meal out on our last night (so nobody had to drive).The bar was busy on arriving which normally is a good sign but going through to the restaurant you get to notice how tired the place is.We were initially greeted by a polite young lady who took or drinks order and told us of the 'specials' (or not so specials) board.We ordered our food which turned out to be very poor considering you were paying £10 - £15 for a main meal & £5 for a pud.The steaks were dry (sitting under heat lamps) and the pasta must have had whole tub of double cream in the sauce which was so rich and sickly,veg out of a tin and button mushrooms that resembled large dried sultanas.To cap it all off the man who served the food to us ( I think was the owner) seemed to think that it was perfectly o.k to butt in and out of our conversations finally ending his performance by placing our son in an 'full nelson ' neck and arm lock.By this time I was looking for the tv camera crew and expecting 'Manuel' to walk in the room.Would I recommend eating here?,I'll leave that to you to decide.
I must say though the Theakstons was fantastic.
